Indian Govt has issued EoI for expansion in Semiconductor platform

India Is Getting Ready For Mass Production Of Semiconductor Chips. semiconductors have been playing a key role in today’s life. Semiconductors are an essential component of electronic devices, enabling advances in communications, computing, healthcare, military systems, transportation, clean energy, and countless other applications.

The government of India released an Expression of Interest inviting companies and consortia, who are desirous of setting up or expanding existing Semiconductor wafer as well as device fabrication facilities in India or acquisition of Semiconductor fabrication facilities outside the country.

The last date for submission of EoI proposal is Jan 31, 2021.

According to the EoI document, Government of India is keen to incentivize and attract investment in setting up of Semiconductor FABs in India. This will increase the productivity in semiconductor platform.

The Government has listed three categories which includes the following.

Well established Integrated Device Manufacturers (IDMs) OR Foundries or Indian Company / Consortia with Indian Industry Partner

-> Having state-of-art mainstream CMOS technology nodes for fabricating processors, memories, analog /digital / mixed signal Integrated Circuits.

-> Desirous of setting up / expansion of existing Semiconductor FAB in India (preferably with a node size of 28nm or lower, wafer size of 300 mm and capacity of 30,000 WSPM or more

Well established IDMs or Foundries OR Indian Company/Consortia with Indian Industry Partner.

-> Having state-of-art Compound Semiconductor based emerging technologies for fabricating High Frequency /High Power / Optoelectronics devices.

-> Desirous of setting up / expansion of existing Semiconductor FAB in India preferably with wafer size of 200 mm or more

Indian Companies / Consortia interested in acquisition of Semiconductor FAB outside India

We’ll keep you updated as more information about this in future.
